I love me some tofu. My usual go-to method of cooking tofu is baking it since it’s easy and no fuss, but I was intrigued when I saw this recipe in our favorite magazine/cookbook, Cooking for Two 2012 (America’s Test Kitchen)for crispy, fried tofu. Frying the tofu was surprisingly easy and gave the tofu a great texture.

The rice bowls were filled with flavor (that vinegar/mirin mix is one I will be using again) and the whole thing came together perfectly. This would be a great lunch if you have the time, since the tofu was best right after frying it. The whole thing only takes 20 minutes to pull together if you have cooked rice and drained tofu, if not just give yourself a little time to prep.

I also love that this bowl can be completely personalized. I would maybe try baking the tofu instead of frying it for a healthier option, possible adding different veggies and playing around with using the nori in whole sheets and wrapping up each piece of tofu like sushi. Lots of options!
